I go to the Silver Key every so often and only because it is closeby and pretty handy for us to go there. I think the food is average, I really think they should make more of an effort to have more fresh food and up the quality. They could be far busier. The bar is lovely and beautifully decorated...

The Silver Key is a pub restaurant and is currently undergoing a facelift. They are doing a very good job as it looks well. The food was excellent for lunch and the service was good. They were very accommodating with kids offering a half portion of anything on the menu as well at a specific kids menu.

The service was a bit slow the staff were talking to each other and eventually came to take our order, but the food was very nice and good value. There is a nice atmosphere when the bar is busy.

Located near Douglas and Mahon in Cork. Food served all day, from breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner in the evening. Food is of a very high standard, with pleasant waiting staff, at good prices.

Ate here recently with friends. Lovely atmosphere, relaxed and informal. Warm, cozy decor and surroundings. Good service. Had the lightly battered prawns and monkfish as a main course. Was delicious, but a bit overpriced.
